Raw Beeswax, USA: Beeswax is a precious protectant made by honey bees. Especially lovely for sensitive and itchy skin, we love this thick, fragrant wax for its antibacterial and humectant (moisture-attracting) properties. This means it not only keeps the skin clean, but also creates a protective barrier that brings moisture to the skin. A good source of vitamin A means this wax will go to work supporting cell turnover and reconstruction.
This high-quality beeswax is a lovely exception to the rule, sourced from treatment-free beehives. “Untreated” means no pesticides, miticides, or medications are used inside the hive (or on the bees) unlike the majority of hives out there. Without chemicals to get in the way, this beeswax touts a pure golden hue and honey smell.
